vintage finds for a modern world: the blues.

dottie angel’s images always inspire me. like this image of her newly upholstered diy (dumptie) foot stool. cute, right? so i thought i’d round up some vintage-inspired inspiration for y’all showcasing some yummy shades of blue — aqua, turquoise and hints of yellow and green. c’mon, let’s get the blues.

clockwise, from l to r: Charlottenberg Chartreuse Green area rug from designers guild; camp bunkhouse plaques via candler arts; Cup by Micah and Whitney Stansell, via artspace; beautiful space to work, via doshe; nostalgia print from f2images; funky vintage bedroom via desire to inspire.

clockwise, from l to r: love the portrait in this kitchen — so unexpected, via living etc.; turquoise chandelier from layla grace; vintage sofa and throw, from candi mandi; double merrick’s matches print; cozy velvet pillows, via polly wreford; eclectic guest bedroom via interior alchemy; can you imagine print by trey speegal, via 20×200; and Turquoise Eskimo Oscillating Fan from goree lane.

  7. For some unknown reason, as a general rule, I have never really liked blue as a decor colour! (Weird, or what!? ;)
    But this collection of photographs is beautiful! Thanks, Victoria :)

  8. Love this! That is my dream bedroom- I am always looking for an antique mirror that big! Fantastic post.

  10. That wall color in the photo with the painting is stunning. I love it’s deep color. It’s almost water like in it’s depth.
